My son was in the audience for this performance. It’s been 12 years since he was that kid with the learner’s permit and he admitted – publicly – that it’s a lot funnier now. What he didn’t realize back then is that it never was about him or his driving. It’s how I experienced it. And please God. I never want to experience it again.
The song is part of my new show: The Mutant Diaries: Unzipping My Genes. It’s hard to think of any song I’ve ever written that has elicited more stories from listeners. Everyone remembers being that kid – or that parent. Do you have a story to share about learning to drive or teaching someone to drive? Leave it here in comments!
